Do your kids love animals...especially baby animals?

A friend of ours has some baby chicks...and no matter how much my little boy has grown, Benj still has a soft spot for the little babies. I just love this pic of him -- taking such good care with the little one.

The boys have been spending time volunteering at  a wonderful community farm. They help feed the animals, collect eggs from the chickens, muck stalls, and learn about growing organic produce and bee keeping!

Your family could get involved, too! Or, just stop by and enjoy the animals, taken in when they would have been put down elsewhere. There is an Alpaca, a giant pig, horses, and so many other animals on this beautiful local farm.

There are pony rides and birthday parties that you can have here, and the farm owners also give back by bringing in groups of scouts, helping special-needs kids with animal therapy, and even providing fresh produce for a local family that has a child with cancer.
